272 Triangle Shawl Patterns - Updated 12/09

All the deadlinks have been fixed or deleted from the list. I may add more links when I get the time. 12/09

This is the master list of triangle shawl patterns. It contains 272 patterns sorted by yardage. They are coded by free or purchased. Click on a pattern name to find a free pattern or go to an online shop where you may purchase it. Shawl patterns from books or magazines have that information listed after the pattern name. Google Images to find pictures of these shawls.

The shawl patterns vary widely in style from easy garter and stockinette stitch, to those with simple lacy holes, or challenging ones with charted lace stitches. Some may be blunted triangles or even half circles. Close enough to a triangle...IMHO. LOL!

They are ranked by the amount of yarn needed to make the smallest size. Check the pattern to see what weight of yarn it recommends. You can vary the size by: 1) using more yarn to make it bigger or less to make it smaller, 2) use a different weight of yarn to change the size. Thicker yarns take less yardage and a lighter weight yarn require more yardage for the same size shawl. Suit the needle size to your yarn weight for best results.

Some of the foreign language patterns have English translations. Others don't, but do have charts. Knitting symbols are pretty universal. Google for translations of knitting terms or use Babelfish or other translation sites for help.

If anyone knows how much yardage is needed for the shawls marked with a ?, post a comment with the information. Ditto if you find any patterns that aren't on the list. Enjoy and have fun knitting!

THANK YOU. I knew I'd seen this list before, and now that I'm preparing a new collection of fingering and sport weight yarns, I was looking for how to market the right amount of yarn in each skein. This time I have bookmarked this post and added it to Knitterman's blog, too.

Again, thanks!
